To report a rare case of bilateral subretinal granulomas with choroidal neovascularization after Mycoplasma pneumoniae atypical pneumonia.Presentation of a 7-year-old girl, who showed bilateral atypical subretinal granulomas with choroidal neovascularization. Visual acuity was 20/20 oculus dexter and 20/200 oculus sinister. Evaluation revealed a systemic Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection with pulmonary involvement. Successful ocular treatment was performed by intravitreal injection of Bevacizumab and laser photocoagulation.Visual acuity was unchanged 36 months after treatment. No further subretinal lesions were seen oculus uterque.To the best of their knowledge and according to literature this patient report is the first one of subretinal granuloma formation after pneumonia due to mycoplasma infection. Since Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a common pathogen, especially in children and young adults, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis of any febrile illness accompanied by ocular signs.
